RULE OF LAW IN THE BALANCE, says PJ Media: "Yes, the Clintons are Playing Us. But Will They Get Away With It? "
PJ Media reports, in part, the following:
A couple of weeks ago, I devoted a column to reflecting on the signal oddity of this campaign season. "There is no reason to believe," I wrote, "that the supreme oddity that has characterized this primary season has run its course." I expected, and expect, more of it.
And so it goes. I could not have imagined, two weeks ago, that Bill Clinton would delay a flight to arrange a private meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
Pause to consider what happened: the sitting attorney general of the United States meets privately with the spouse of the subject of an ongoing FBI criminal investigation.
Yes, you can file it under "Impropriety, Appearance of."
It was not supposed to have come to the public's attention at all. "The FBI there on the tarmac instructed everybody: no photos, no pictures, no cell phones," said Christopher Sign, the enterprising local news reporter in Arizona who broke the story.
Why did Bill Clinton request the meeting? If Loretta Lynch is to be believed, it was to talk about his grandchildren, not Hillary.
That's so nice.
Hillary: 'I've Been Eager' to be Interviewed by FBI
There was, and continues to be, considerable fury in response to the meeting - more, oddly enough, than has been gingered up for Hillary's behavior over Benghazi or her email scandal. But maybe, like Al Capone's tax troubles, this will be the straw that breaks the candidate's back..................
And, who knows, it might even happen that the weight of the evidence will be too much for Hillary's supporters to countenance. A lot rests on the shoulders of FBI director James Comey. Will he follow the investigation where the evidence leads?
Or will he bow to political pressure? It is not too much to say that the future of the rule of law in this country depends on his decision. It's likely that we will know in a matter of weeks.
